These words by F. Scott Fitzgerald summarize the classic stereotype of rich people: They are idle snobs who inherited their money and have little in common with, or sympathy for, people of lesser means.
Throughout history, this view has formed the basis of many redistributionist creeds.

Ninety-four percent state that they are largely self-made, either as businesspersons or professionals. Eighty percent affirm that they enjoy greater wealth than their parents. What does this study tell us? First, that the rich are far from idle. Work is the underpinning of their wealth. Instead of envying their luck, we should seek to replicate their success — and teach our children to do the same. Second, that upward mobility is a reality in our country.
The myth that you cannot become rich unless you are born into money is false: Canada is a land of opportunity. Third, that the rich have considerable empathy for those less fortunate. The rich have more money than the rest of us — in some cases, a lot more money. But most have earned it themselves through hard work.
